J-music

leave a comment »

J-music = J-rock + J-pop + J-electronica; J = Japanese

I started getting interested in Jmusic when I started watching a lot of Anime. I often listed to SickOnion.com radio. It plays a great collection based on the actual popular music in Japan unlike the other anime stations (usually north-american) where the primary targets are “otakus”.

Some of the artists/bands that I liked while I was listerning to SickOnion.com are:

(not in any particular order)

Shiina Ringo – Yattsuke Shigoto

Hitomi Shimatani – Haru Machibito

Antique Cafe – Escapism

Dir en Grey – Mazohyst of Decadence, Oscure(uncut), Embryo

Janne da Arc

Tommy February6 – Lonely in Gorgeous

Koda Kumi – Ningyo Hime

Bloodthirsty Butchers – Sanzan

HiGE – Dirty na sekai (Put your head)

BUCK-TICK – Kagerou
(this is the ending-song in xxxHolic and the two girls are *cute* ^^)
more to come…

Hmmph..
I wish I could sleep long periods of time like they show in those vampire-based animes. You get to stay awake for just about the same duration- non-stop!
Preparing for these exams can be the most boring thing you could ever do. And there’s this course called TA201 which is pure “remember-the-details-and-forget-it-the-next-day” kind of a course.
I’m currently listening to “contemporary instrumental” through internet radio. My primary desktop-OS is linux and I just stumbled upon this great app called ” streamtuner.
Coupled with amaroK it’s kick ass rocking ^_^<

gtg now, lots of lecture slides still remaining 😦
